After breakfast, we will drive to Ramthangka from where we will hike to Taktsang Monastery or often called Tiger Nest Temple which is built around a cave in which Guru Rimpoche (also known as Guru Padmasambhava) meditated.
The eighth century old monastery is perched on a rock overlooking a sheer drop and clings seemingly impossible to a cliff of rock at 900m above the valley floor.
The hike is almost 2 hours walk, uphill at 30 to 40 degree inclined for an average hiker however we might take full day depending on your pace.
First of half of the hike which we pull-up, up to cafeteria feels never ending however from the halfway due to magical structure right inform us, we are all energized to push further and you actually feel very near.\
Finally you are done and filled with joys of happiness to be at Taktshang. For the return journey, we actually feel like walking down very fast.
After the lovely hike, you need to have a relaxing massage at the hotel/enjoy dipping yourself into the hot stone bath (both available on extra cost).
We usually respond in less than 24 hours. It's worth the wait!
